End of the month

Left Darwin at the end of February and been down near Port Augusta all March. Not a happy month - dust, dirt and flies. Never enough sleep and the food is ... enough to survive on but not really what I would call "food". :)

And all this timevaway from my family. :(

But it is nearly done, should be home again before the end of the weekend. :D Work is work, but it will be so good to get home, have some time with the family. It never gets easier, being away for so long with minimal contact.

But all things end, just a few short days to go. Lost a fair bit of weight, will be interesting to weigh myself again. I was about to change up my pants size but at the moment I am using an old occy strap I found as a belt!

At least I've been able to get some decent food into me today. Yay for fresh fruit and veggies! Yay for fresh, cold milk!

On the road

Off on another road trip, down to South Australia. Same on I've done before, difference is Tania will be waiting when I get back home.

Being away for a few weeks sucks, but it is much better than being away for months at a time.

This time I'm a bit more mentally prepared. Having done it before, I have a better idea of what I am in for and what to expect. No doubt there will be new and different challenges to overcome, but that's one of the reasons we do it. To become better.

Just gets annoying when we get jerked around for no good reason. Missed out on part of my rationed food and missed out on a shower. Neither is a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but the little things add up to make the whole thing unfun.
